Min-seok “AimGod” Kwon, a flex support player and former Overwatch League player, has officially joined Squad CC, the Shanghai Sharks' Contenders team, after only a few months with the team. AimGod competed with Team CC in the inaugural season of the 2021 Contenders in Korea in May, marking his first competitive appearance in over a year.
AimGod spent two seasons with Boston Uprising after playing for Ardeont and Meta Bellum in 2017 and 2018. While he was a member of the Uprising's first season squad, which finished third in the regular season and advanced to the playoffs, he played the fewest minutes of anybody on the roster. He saw a lot more action in season two, however he was one of numerous players dismissed in October 2019 after the club finished second-to-last, barely ahead of the Florida Mayhem.
He didn't go long without a team, joining with the Washington Justice for the 2020 season, where he paired with highly respected main support Yeon-joon "ArK" Hong in his final season before retiring. AimGod's playing time and performance increased dramatically, and he led the squad in healing throughout the season. The Justice had another disappointing regular season, ending second-to-last with a 4-17 record, but then they exploded in the NA Playoffs.
They swept Vancouver and Dallas in the Play-Ins, came close to beating San Francisco in the first round of the playoffs, and then blitzed past Paris, the LA Valiant, and Florida in the lower bracket before losing to Philadelphia. They came in third place, much above of expectations, and joined Seoul and Shanghai as the only teams to take two maps away from eventual champions Shock.
During the playoff run, AimGod ranked second in healing for all players. Despite that spectacular postseason, Washington chose to restructure, and AimGod, along with DPS Lee “Stitch” Chung-hee and off-tank Choi “JJanu” Hyeon-woo, were released.
AimGod has returned after a hiatus of several months. He joined Team CC in May to help them win the NetEase Esports X Spring Tournament, and he'll be on the Contenders Korea squad for the upcoming season.
